Kickstart Your Career

We are proud to work with Makers Academy (in England) and ALS Apprenticeships (in Wales) to deliver our software development higher apprenticeship, and Firebrand Training to deliver our software testing higher apprenticeship.

We have a number of higher apprenticeship programmes across our business, which provide the opportunity to pursue a range of courses covering IT and Business Processes.

When you join us as an apprentice, you will enjoy the benefits of a permanent, full-time employment contract. And once you’ve completed your higher apprenticeship, you’ll have achieved a Level 4 qualification.

Your learning will be complemented by on-the-job training gained on live projects with real jobs and real clients. So your personal development in a working environment begins on day one.



You can take control of your career from day one. We are growing and we’re financially strong, so we can support the most ambitious careers, in whichever direction you wish to go. You will have the opportunity to experience a number of roles within CGI, which lets you shape your career around your own professional interests.

Due to the nature of our business, you work on ‘projects’. This means you’re never doing the same thing and you can have different roles across various projects. Previous undergraduates have worked on top-secret national security projects, played their part in securing Europe’s major satellites and helped to win multi-million pound projects – all planned and executed to the standards our clients expect.

The support we offer our students is unrivalled. You will have a designated manager, who will support your career development and professional conduct. You will also have line managers on your projects that will look after you on a day-to-day basis. In addition, you will have a ‘buddy’, who is a current or graduated apprentice of the programme to help you with anything else you may need.



If you love technology, IT and computing, our software development higher apprenticeship is for you.
